This election isn't about political parties and personalities. It's about jobs. The people you elect will have the power to protect or destroy our jobs, our benefits and our middle-class livelihoods. So VOTE.
It takes a skilled union laborer to build, demolish, maintain, and repair buildings and infrastructure. It also apparently takes a skilled union Laborer to find one the world's oldest messages in a bottle.
Another day at the worksite for LIUNA Local 3's Robert Kanaby, right?
Kanaby, a 13-year member, was working demolition at Montclair State University last February. Using a chipping hammer to take down a 6-foot brick wall, Kanaby heard the sound of broken glass which would lead him down a path no other Laborer in the history of LIUNA has probably ever experienced. He discovered a 112-year old message from two union bricklayers who were involved in the building of the stately College Hall on the MSU campus. The glass he heard shattered was the bottle the letter was stored in.
